Naked Cowboy threatens suit against Indian

NEW YORK, July 8 (UPI) -- New York City's "Naked Cowboy" has threatened a lawsuit against the up-and-coming "Naked Indian" over turf in Times Square.

The Cowboy, Robert Burck, who has been playing guitar and singing in his underwear and cowboy hat in Times Square for years, now has a rival in the Indian, Adam Davis, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Burck, who said there are no ill feelings between him and Davis, has nonetheless threatened to sue Davis if he refuses to join Burck's company, Naked Cowboy Enterprises, a franchise that features Naked Cowgirls and other entertainers.

"I've been here ... 365 days, every day for 13 years and change," Burck said. "He's only been here 16 days and missed two already."

Davis, who dons underwear and a headdress, said there is room in the busy tourist area for more gimmicks.

"No one was doing an Indian," said the aspiring actor. "[The Cowboy and I] have a word-of-mouth contract. This country was built on handshakes and word-of-mouth agreements. I don't lose, I always win."

Meanwhile, visitors to Times Square seem to favor the Naked Cowboy.

"I'm Team Cowboy," said Naomi Carrier, 31, of Union, N.J. "He's cute, he's friendly, he's fun and he has a personality. He was flirty."

"They're both nice," said 16-year-old Sarah Levenphal. "The Cowboy has a guitar and he sounds more melodic. The Indian doesn't sing."
